After another cracking weekend of hurling we finally got to see what the Munster hurling championship had to offer. Having looked at all games across the weekend we have picked our best 15 hurlers of the weekend.

  1. Alan Nolan (Dublin) – was solid in the Dublin goal made some good saves and kept a clean sheet despite his side losing out to Wexford.
  2. Colm Spillane (Cork) – man marked Shane O’Donnell and did quite well to be fair not allowing him to much space. A superb man marker.
  3. Liam Ryan (Wexford) – was once again solid in defence for Davy Fitzgerald’s side. A top-class defender.
  4. Pat Camon (Offaly) – did well marking TJ Reid who only who only got 1-01 from play. A tough man marker and a massive game.
  5. Diarmuid O’Keeffe (Wexford) – good performance the St Anne’s man in defence.
  6. Diarmuid Byrnes (Limerick) – a fine performance from the wing back who contributed 0-03 albeit from placed balls. A real leader in the defence and set up numerous attacking opportunities.
  7. Cillian Buckley (Kilkenny) – solid performance from Buckley again, was Kilkenny’s best defender against Offaly.
  8. Tony Kelly (Clare) – came into his own as the game progressed contributed 1-03 to the Clare cause, I expect him to continue his form next weekend.
  9. Cian Lynch (Limerick) – good performance from Lynch in midfield scored two nice points also.
  10. Seamus Harnedy (Cork) – was superb for Cork in attack, contributed 1-02 from play, important goal sealed the win in added time.
  11. Conor Lehane (Cork) – good performance from Lehane contributing 1-02 from play.
  12. Liam Blanchfield (Kilkenny) – another superb performance from Blanchfield, scored a good goal and a couple of points as Kilkenny made it two from two.
  13. Luke Scanlon (Kilkenny) – scored four good points from play for Kilkenny in a fine individual performance
  14. Rory O’Connor (Wexford) – was the match winner with 0-12 points for Wexford, scored an outrageous point for 95 yards to level the sides going into added time against Dublin
  15. Patrick Horgan (Cork) – a superb performance from the Glen Rovers man, contributed 0-10, 0-04 from play. Also assisted Conor Lehane’s superb goal.
